Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are David & Effie. We were born and raised in upstate South Carolina. I found Find A Grave in 2009 and now David has joined me in a search for our "lost" family members. We sincerely hope that along the way our contributions to this site will help others find theirs.

We wish to thank those who have made memorials for our family members and those who have transfered management of them to us. We especially want to thank those who have made the corrections we requested, as correct and complete data is the key to accomplishing our goals.

Our primary sources of information for our memorials, other than direct knowledge of burial, are grave marker photos and obituaries. We use these sources as backup for our entries, as we DO NOT make any without proof of burial location.

Our motto is... to err is human, and to correct is necessary. Please contact us if you find an error on our memorials or if you have missing information that we can add to make an appealing and honorable memorial. We will gladly correct any errors on our entries, make additions, add links or transfer memorials if they are not related to us. (please use the EDIT tab and make a suggestion option on the memorial for any request.)

We understand that a photo says more than a thousand words, and is a very important part of family research. It is our pleasure to offer our photos for personal genealogical purposes. You may re-post on Find A Grave if you will have the courtesy to give us credit in the caption of the photo. Otherwise, DO NOT RE-POST!

Everyone is welcome to visit and leave a flower for our immediate family members listed below or any of our memorials and once again, we wish to thank all of our Find A Grave friends who have done a wonderful job in helping preserve our heritage and making this a wonderful site.

Willard G. Murphy - #133879998

An edit was submitted for Mr. Murphy to delete his spouse, Cora, as shown on his memorial.

Is this indeed correct?

OK, I think that the heading in that last email that I accidentally sent with no body says it all.

The email that I sent on 02-19 was supposed to be the "thank you" for this edit. I have no idea how that memorial number got into the subject line. Mysterious things are happening with Find A Grave memorials!

Anyway, please know that I appreciate all that you do.

RE: Cleveland Columbus 45225300
I was requesting that Cleveland Columbus Seay be replaced with William Cleveland Seay, Sr. William Cleveland is my uncle and the son of Mary Elizabeth Bishop Seay and James Belton Seay and the brother of my mother, Elsia Tarol Seay Metcalf. Someone has now removed Cleveland Columbus, but William Cleveland hasn't been added. Now, are you thoroughly confused? Haha
Thank you for all of your help.
